Opinions are worthless too. Everyone has them and they are mostly different. If you use the reviews as a starting point, then you will have some idea of what to expect.

Actually....it's "Opinions are like assholes, they all stink and everybody has one."

I know, but I went the PG-13 route so as to not offend anyone but still get my point across.

personally im a fan of written reviews. it takes 2 minutes to write and only 30 seconds to read what you want to know vs watching a multiple minute video to get the same info.

I like them also but i feel like I can get a better "feel" for the tobacco. There is more content in video reviews imo.

Agreed but not everyone does, though if you don't know what it looks like saying, "it's a typical *tobacco* cut" doesn't help much lol

So I have tried to consider all of the things that have been mentioned here, could you watch my three latest reviews where I have tried to use the tips here and put them into action:
Nakhla Banana http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fC2LD2SVtvk
Nakhla Coconut http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=82kjMCwDaT8
Nakhla Orange http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S1oF2nlva7g
They are still being published atm but you should be able to watch them
I would really appreciate some feedback

LOL, I would not go as far to say more content. Maybe it is more personable and you can relate better with a face and some comforting words. Especially if they take a hit and start convulsing.

The contests are great but the video reviews seem to have gone from quality to quantity over night. I cannot stomach half of them anymore as it has polluted the video section with more garbage then the New York landfill.

I understand the purpose behind contests and getting people to post up videos as it does add to the community. It also adds anyone with a camera that thinks they are the next George Lucas, lol.

I don't care how much you like the flavor, I just want to know how close the flavor is to the real thing.
Don't review Blue Mist anymore
agreed =)

I never actually watch the video reviews, I listen to them while I'm doing something else.

Am I the only person who couldn't care less what the cut looks like?

Honestly, if the flavor sounds good to me, I'll get some and see the cut myself. I don't understand why it's important.

ya i am not huge on cuts, honestly i dont like a huge cut cause its harder to pack but i also dont want it to be so fine its like a paste. honestly nakhla is what ive gotten super used to so its what i like, tangiers seems kinda long but since you have to treat it all special it doesnt matter as much but some of the af and sb isnts good to me but i dont really smoke it much (the cut it self isnt horrible its just so processed it seems super soft and mushy)

and stems, i dont care that much about stems as long as i dont get a bx full of them, heck on an egyptian bowl some 1-2 inch stems are good to use to prevent the holes from getting blocked
